    Facebook seems to be a useful thing to find old friends but doesn’t have respect for privacy… Ban!

    Brilliant article – Did not know the last few bits that they lost 6 million people in one day wow thats allot. But agree with the last statement what wil theyfail at next. If they had kept it as it was think things would have been better the updates havent made facebook anybetter for example

    when you log in now the latest posts arent at the top its old and new posts all mixed i have missed loads of peoples posts which i would have wanted to know because i cannot find them. My mates not the best at letting me know when he has a gig however he will put on his wall the day before and it normally appears in my feed however facebook shoves this near the bottom so i keep missing it.

    Looks like someone’s got some beef with Facebook…It seems a little un-professional in my opinion. At the end of the day, Facebook still provides a service, and a good one at that.

    “Where were when the internet didn’t give an F?” — Really? Sounds like an “Out of milk – fml” comment.

    The fact is Facebook has continually offered new services and features that have resulted in a healthy ranking of #2 website on planet.

    Man, the scrutiny that comes with fame…ouch. Google probably holds more information about our user behavior and I don’t see anyone picking apart conversations that Larry Page and Sergey Brin held at one point. Google takes away A LOT more of our (business) money to advertise.

    My message to the creator: Focus on the big picture. Facebook needs some way to live (revenue) and they are going to screw up along the way. Google is the empire who has way more of an economic impact and should receive the scrutiny.

    My two cents…

    The positive news here is in the fact that they are not afraid of failure. Afterall, it is the #1 website in the world. I agree with Alex on this one, Google’s wall is certainly as impressive as Facebook’s. Not my favorite blog post SEJ but love the infographics!

    The top right corner of this infographic sums it all up for me… “Facebook persuaded millions of people to share information about themselves under the guise of privacy.” In these days and in the think-tank meetings they had, it was a perfect platform to gather, store and use that information from the beginning. We all fell for it and help them build the giant that is now FB. Google+ is no different, however, everyone knows Google stores things and privacy for them has always been in question from their “Free” products and ads showing in our Gmail accounts.
